Breakfast Camp Meals for Fall Camping
All camping food is good, but these breakfast meal suggestions are the best! I’ll bet you won’t hear a peep from your family members about them!
1. Scrambled Eggs, Bacon And Hashbrowns
Oh yes! This combination is a favorite of mine. Try putting a sprinkle or two of cinnamon or perhaps pumpkin spice on the hashbrowns to make them flavorful for fall. Also, make sure to bring along salsa, ketchup, and other condiments so everyone can enjoy their breakfast how they want. And, sometimes, all you need in life is a good piece of bacon or three to start the morning off right. Cooking all three in a cast-iron skillet over the campfire gives it so much more flavor and taste! But beware …seconds are a must.
2. Cast-Iron Cinnamon Rolls For Fall Camping
Oh yes …you have to whip up some cinnamon rolls in your cast iron pan. If you’re feeling ambitious, you can make them from scratch, or you can easily buy them premade at the store and just put them in the pan. The heat from the campfire will cook them in no time, and there will be minimal talking during the consumption as it’s the perfect way to wake up!
You may want to try pumpkin cinnamon rolls with caramel sauce to keep with the fall camping theme, like this photo below. Don’t these cinnamon rolls look yummy?
3. Roasted Banana S’mores
It’s a traditional s’ mores with graham crackers and chocolate but replacing the marshmallows with bananas. Don’t knock it until you try it – it’s delicious!!
4. Biscuits and Gravy
Holy moly. There is NOTHING like warm biscuits and gravy when you’re camping — NOTHING. It’s a “stick to your ribs” type meal that is certain to have everyone rushing out of the camper to enjoy.

5. Breakfast Burritos
Another super simple breakfast for camping is breakfast burritos. Just pack along the flour or corn tortillas and fill them with scrambled eggs, some bacon, and a little bit of cheese and salsa. The result? Quite possibly everyone’s favorite breakfast for every camping trip moving forward!
6. Make-Ahead Overnight Oats
Save some time and make this recipe at home, then bring it to camp. Here’s the perfect recipe on thedyrt, plus more make-ahead meals for your fall camping meals.
7. Pancakes and Sausage Link
Take along a griddle and plug it in. Pancakes and sausage are a constant staple for us when camping. I like to douse mine in syrup, while my boy likes to wrap his pancake around the sausage link and eats it like a sandwich. In my opinion, there’s no wrong way to enjoy pancakes! Make sure you pack the ingredients needed to make these fantastic breakfast camp foods before leaving your house. That way, once you arrive, you can rest easy knowing that breakfast is ready to be cooked up in the morning!
8. Campfire Skillet Breakfast
What’s better than these three cooked to perfection altogether – bacon (crumbled), eggs, and potatoes? Before leaving for camp, microwave the potatoes so they will be ready for the skillet. You could also cook the bacon beforehand too, but that’s no fun.
